CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many active compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, it is not psychoactive and will not get you high on its own. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t affect your body.
In fact, CBD is a proven natural remedy for many common ailments. Though the government has only recognized its potential for treating seizures so far, many people suffering from muscle and joint pains, anxiety, depression and even addiction swear by it.
